Did You Know?
Things to remember:
Pulse checks are usually not advised to be performed if you have ascertained that the victim is unresponsive and isn’t breathing. Untrained rescuers just try and wake the victim and just check for breathing and start CPR in their absence. However, trained rescuers can check for pulse BUT NOT LONGER THAN 10 SECONDS. If you can’t find it within 10 seconds, start cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.
